A person under an age specified by law, often 14 or 16. For example, state law may require a person to be over the age of 14 to make a valid will, or may define the crime of statutory rape as sex with a person under the age of 16.

A person below the specified legal age who is married is often considered an adult rather than a child. See also emancipation.

  23. This word has considerable latitude of meaning in Scripture. Thus Joseph is called a child at the time when he was probably about sixteen years of age ( Genesis 37:3 ); and Benjamin is so called when he was above thirty years ( 44:20 ). Solomon called himself a little child when he came to the kingdom ( 1 Kings 3:7 ). The descendants of a man, however remote, are called his children; as, "the children of Edom," "the children of Moab," "the children of Israel." In the earliest times mothers did not wean their children till they were from thirty months to three years old; and the day on which they were weaned was kept as a festival day ( Genesis 21:8 ; Exodus 2:7 Exodus 2:9 ; 1 Samuel 1:22-24 ; Matthew 21:16 ). At the age of five, children began to learn the arts and duties of life under the care of their fathers ( Deuteronomy 6:20-25 ; 11:19 ). To have a numerous family was regarded as a mark of divine favour ( Genesis 11:30 ; 30:1 ; 1 Samuel 2:5 ; 2 Sam 6:23 ; Psalms 127:3 ; 128:3 ). Figuratively the name is used for those who are ignorant or narrow-minded ( Matthew 11:16 ; Luke 7:32 ; 1 Corinthians 13:11 ). "When I was a child, I spake as a child." "Brethren, be not children in understanding" ( 1 Corinthians 14:20 ). "That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro" ( Ephesians 4:14 ). Children are also spoken of as representing simplicity and humility ( Matthew 19:13-15 ; Mark 10:13-16 ; Luke 18:15-17 ). Believers are "children of light" ( Luke 16:8 ; 1 Thessalonians 5:5 ) and "children of obedience" ( 1 Peter 1:14 ). biblestudytools.com
